#622517 Do You Feel More Mentally Healthy After Going gluten-free?

Posted by O.N. on 08 July 2010 - 09:30 AM

I am definitely more centered since going gluten free. The tensed up monster living inside me relaxed and rejoined me. I feel whole. PMS gone
daily headaches gone
anxiety gone
my hatred of other people and crowded spaces gone
my weight going down
depression gone
over reactions to little things gone
rational thought back
ability to play pool remarkable (I can see the angles needed to make a shot now rather than just guessing)
feeling that I'm so clever feeling- which disappeared around puberty- which when thinking about it was about the time the red cheeks appeared too (just realized this as typing)

I am not diagnosed for any of my symptoms nor celiacs (still have to talk to a doctor about it).


You don't need to be officially diagnosed to know how you feel without gluten. Listen to your gut! I am happy for you that gluten-free diet helps you! :D

#612134 Does Anyone Have Bad Reactions To Quinoa?

Posted by O.N. on 21 May 2010 - 12:26 PM

...The ONLY thing I ate out of the norm was Ancient Harvest Quinoa pasta, which is labeled gluten free, with the only ingredients being Organic Corn Flour, and Organic Quinoa Flour. I know that corn is not a problem for me as I often make it as a side dish and I have had corn only pasta (Mrs. Leepers, I think?) once before That was wonderful. So does anyone reaction to quinoa the same as gluten?
...


I am on a gluten-free diet for almost 5 months and still have problems with many foods, including grains in general. I have pain and bloating when I eat a bowl of grain which may feel almost as a reaction for gluten. I discovered I can eat only a small amount of grain (the safe ones of course) because of the high content of fiber. I decided to wait until my gut heals before. I just eat safe veggies and proteins (no spices etc) and I feel much better now.

Maybe you should wait with grains until your gut heals? B)

#601808 Do You Feel More Mentally Healthy After Going gluten-free?

I meant to also ask if any undiagnosed problems got better, but to just notate whether or not you were diagnosed. Non of my mental health issues from the past were ever officially diagnosed, they are just my take on how I feel.


I am on a gluten-free diet for 3 months. I can't believe that I can feel so calm, confident, secure. Such a difference! I don't remember when I felt so good emotionally last time.

Even my PMS and migraines are gone. Also my irritability is gone. To be gluten-free is a very small price I am happy to pay for my emotional health. But I also take vitamins to correct my vitamin deficiency.
